Early learning educational service Hopster has announced its latest expansion to Bulgaria.
Platform operator Sandbox Kids has partnered with Bulgarian tech company Vivacom to launch the service in the country, with Hopster exclusively available in Bulgaria via Vivacom’s EON platform.
Hopster offers users access to family favourites such as Pingu and Peppa Pig along with original series and English-language learning shows. The company will also launch an ad-free localised app on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Chief Revenue Officer of Sandbox Kids, Kimberly Verbonitz said “We are thrilled to partner with Vivacom and enter the Bulgarian market. Sandbox Kids understands the Balkan market and its families’ need for premium, localised, fun learning content. It is a strategically important region for us, and the United Group has helped us gain a strong foothold, accelerating our growth and expanding our geographical reach in Europe.”
Chief Commercial Officer at Vivacom Dimitris Loupis said: “The EON kids` zone is a very important part of the EON platform. We want to provide safe and fun space for children. And this is possible only through very rich and various content. The exclusive partnership with Hopster will help us to enrich our VOD services and to offer better clients experience.”
